Police: Driver sought in possible hit-and-run
Woman critically hurt; cops look for dark truck
Grand Junction police are looking for the driver of a truck believed to be involved in Sunday’s early-morning crash that left a Clifton woman with critical injuries.
Amber Davidovich, 32, was at the corner of Ninth and Main streets around 2:30 a.m., when witnesses said she tried to flag down the driver of a dark-colored Dodge Dakota, which was headed east on Main, police said. Shortly after, witnesses heard the vehicle leaving and saw Davidovich lying on the ground.
It wasn’t known, based on witness statements, if her injuries were caused by the vehicle, police spokeswoman Kate Porras said.
Davidovich was in critical condition at St. Mary’s Hospital as of 5 p.m. Monday.
Davidovich, an employee of The Daily Sentinel for just over nine years, is the mother of a boy, 8 months, and an 8-year-old girl. Hired in May 2003, she’s a telemarketer in the newspaper’s circulation department and has represented the Sentinel at a variety of festivals, selling subscriptions.
“She’s the one who always wants to know how you are doing, never wants to talk about herself,” said Judy Shay, a sales representative and friend of four years.
Anyone with information about the driver’s identity is asked to call 242-6707, or Mesa County Crime Stoppers, 241-STOP. Tips also can be sent online, http://www.241stop.com.
